Lantra accreditation for Stadium
Highways workers looking to qualify to work on the UK’s roads can now earn their stripes from a Coventry-based event management firm after it earned accreditation from a major industry body – Lantra.
Stadium has now been approved by Lantra, a major provider of training in a variety of land-based industries, to deliver important traffic management courses at any venue they choose.
The firm has been accredited to teach a course known as ‘Highways Sector Scheme 12D’, which ensures anyone who works on urban or rural roads, be they construction workers, highway inspectors or traffic management staff, are fully competent before they start work.
Completion of the course means a trainee becomes a Registered Traffic Management Operative (RTMO).
Jemma Baillie, HR and Training Manager at Stadium, said: “Being accredited by Lantra is a real boost for Stadium, as anyone wishing to qualify to work on UK roads in a number of roles will now be able to come to us to earn their qualification.
“Not only that, we will also be able to head out and deliver this course externally for those who aren’t able to come to Coventry easily.
“Lantra qualifications are developed by industry experts, who we have been working alongside to get our course ready to go.
“We are one of the best in the events industry when it comes to the training we provide, so being accredited by Lantra is another feather in our cap and enables us to meet even more of the needs of the events industry than we already do.
“We’re really looking forward to teaching our first cohort of trainees and getting them qualified as RTMOs.”
Stadium already provides training toward Level 2, 3 and 4 NVQs in Spectator Safety, SIA-accredited security courses, and in customer service.
It also provides bespoke training programmes to overseas clients, including Qatari security officials to prepare them for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and has also provided them to staff from the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation.
